About the NFL

The National Forensic League is the nation's oldest and largest debate and speech honor society. Since our founding in 1925, we have enrolled over 1 million members in all 50 states.

The National Forensic League believes that all students should be empowered to become effective communicators, ethical individuals, critical thinkers, and leaders in a democratic society. We exist to promote secondary school speech and debate activities and interscholastic competition as a means to develop a student's lifelong skills and values and to increase the public's awareness of the value of speech, debate, and communication education.

The NFL Mission

The National Forensic League Honor Society promotes secondary school speech and debate activities and interscholastic competition as a means to develop a student?s lifelong skills and values, as well as the public?s awareness of the value of speech, debate, and communication education.

As an organization, the National Forensic League embraces diversity, interconnection, and visionary leadership. We empower students to become effective communicators, ethical individuals, critical thinkers, and leaders in a democratic society.

The NFL Vision

The organization serves as the central agent for coordination and facilitation of


heightened public awareness of the value of speech communication skills,
development of educational initiatives for student and teacher training,
excellence in interscholastic competition, and
the promotion of honor society ideals.

Room 1 Argumentation

Cristi?n Santib?ñez Y?ñez (Chile): Metaphorical design from an argumentative point of view
Roosmaryn Pilgram (Netherlands): Characterising character: Analysing appeals to ethos in a dialectical framework
Satoru Aonuma and Naoto Usui (Japan): In Defense of Argument Culture: A Rhetorical Criticism of Asiacentric Bias in Intercultural Communication

The International debate academy Slovenia is probably one of the best places to come and learn how to debate. Getting feedback from people from all over the world, with all their different views on debate, argumentation etc and with that all the debates and fun. Well...
See for yourself, you just need to apply.
But before you do that, watch another video from IDAS 2007, Ormo? Slovenia where Neil Harvey Smith speaks about different types of arguments.

Neil is a great debate trainer from the UK and he was a trainer at the International debate academy 2007 in Slovenia and as he said, he will return in november 2008. Monitor this website to get all the information.

I really support the idea about internet debates. I've even tried to organise one with Tuna's debaters, but we had to cancel it because of some technical problems we had on my faculty to establish an connection to the server.

At the time Tuna was preparing a site, where you could upload your video and another person from another part of the world would do a reply for you. I'm sure this page is still somewhere on the internet, but I'm not sure if it works. And AFAIK IDEA is doing something simmilar, if nothing else, I am sure that they are doing it with text...

It is an idea, that should be tried out, I have the server capabilities, anyone interested?
